About me and my blog

Guy Pelham

I blog mostly about my favourite corner of Spain — Villajoyosa on the Costa Blanca — but also anything or anywhere else in Spain that takes my fancy. It’s a fascinating country!

I divide my time between London and Villajoyosa, (aka La Vila Joiosa in Valenciano, or just La Vila for short). That’s why this blog is called “View from La Vila”.

My wife is Spanish, so I’ve been spending time in Spain – especially the area around Alicante – for more years than I care to remember. I can’t resist Spanish food and wine, so I post a lot about both – plus my favourite walks to lose the calories afterwards. You’ll also find musings here on everything from the Romans to rugby.

Covid-19 may still affect opening hours at some of the places I feature here, so it’s a good idea to check before you visit.

All opinions and recommendations are 100% my own – unlike some other sites, I don’t make any money out of blogging.
